TOPIC: What year is it?

What year is it? 3 Years, 1 Month ago Karma: 6  
Trying to sort out some stuff by date and I'm struggling with years. What is the HQ year numbering system? Does the year run from Cold Moon to Snow Moon or from Eostarre to Eostarre (when everyone is accounted a year older)? Or from Reckoning to Reckoning?

Is this the start of a new set of years? (Do we count forwards from each Cataclysm? (So this would be Year 1 of the Fourth Age) Or do we still use whatever the year was from The Village on Murandir?



Confused...

Hi Mike

From the Herofest-Heroquest email...

The date has been reset and it is now PC 0, it increases at the beginning of each year (Cold Moon), so next Cold Moon it will be PC 1.

Thanks, Sarah.

I mustn't be on that list, I guess. What year was it last year?

Yeah I think the list may come from a facebook group or something.

I seem to recall this discussion from somewhere before, and that last year would be "Before-Cataclysm" ..hmm!

Maybe the acronym could be improved by calling it "Before The Cataclysm" (BTC)

So we have a 0 based index then? "The first year after the Cataclysm is the year PC 0"

I can see the "when is the millenium?" arguments already.

given that the cataclysm happened, like, last week and no new years have passed since then, I don't see the argument for it being 1 year past the cataclysm already

that would be like being born age 1!

In some cultures, that's exactly what happens. Also, in most calendars, there is no year zero. This is probably a good exception as the Cataclysm appears to have shockingly disregarded our need for neat numbering systems by occurring mid-year. Very poor...
